Cometto bolsters heavy cargo fleet

Turkish transport company, Hareket, has taken delivery of 108 modular axle lines (MGSL) from Italian trailer builder, Cometto.

The delivery comprises 11 six-axle modules, eight four-axle modules and two split modules.

According to Cometto, the supply will be used in two projects: Turakurgan Combined Cycle Power Plant Project 900MW and Navoi-2 Combined Heat and Power Plant Project 450MW.

The MGSLs will reportedly transport 67 heavy cargo units with a total weight ranging from 97-274 tonnes from Kazakhistan Port to Uzbekistan Turakurgan for a total of 2,400 km and another transport from Kazakhistan Port to Uzbekistan Navoi traveling 1,750km.

MGSL is the new heavy duty modular vehicle produced by Cometto with a technical capacity of 45 tonnes per axle line. MGSL is designed for public roads, off-road transport as well as for inside plant operations.

“Thanks to a strengthened loading area, it reaches point loads up to 50 tonnes above the wheel arches and 80 tonnes above cross members for heavy and concentrated loads,” Cometto said in a statement. “MGSL offer seamless interoperability with identical vehicles from several other manufacturers. This variety of combination options as well as the user-friendly operating concept makes the MGSL a guarantor of flexibility and economy.”

Cometto unveiled its new MGSL last year, following the company’s acquisition by Luxembourg-based OEM, Faymonville Group.
